* Several of the songs in the Franchise/Bemani franchise by artist TaQ are noted for being in excellent German. Which isn't surprising considering he was raised in Germany.

** Likewise, ''[[SaintsRow Saints Row The Third]]'' offers us Philippe Loren, a belgian criminal voiced by native French speaker Jacques Hennequet. While Philippe mostly avoids the GratuitousFrench trope, the few lines he actually speaks in French are flawless.

* Origa's beautiful Russian singing gave her quite a notable career in anime soundtracks, with her most notable performances probably being 'Inner Universe' and 'Rise', the openings of the first and second seasons of ''Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex.''

Added DiffLines:

* The ending theme of ''Anime/FantasticChildren'', 'Mizu no Madoromi', has two versions- the normal Japanese version used in the present-day episodes, and an alternate version used in the episodes that flashback to Greecia, sung in Russian. Both versions are sung by the late Ol'ga Vital'evna Jakovleva, better known as Origa. The Russian version is, if anything, even more beautiful than the superlative Japanese version, possibly because it was originally written in Russian before being translated into Japanese (the Russian version's lyrics rhyme noticeably better).

* In ''Film/MadMaxFuryRoad'', the Buzzards (the gang in the porcupine-looking spiked cars) communicate among themselves in perfect Russian. The actors who played them are all Russians and even have matching Moscow accents.

The actors who played them are all Russians and even have matching Moscow accents. More than that, apparently they are speaking a form of Russian slang used by criminals for extra authenticity.

* Black Widow's interrogation scene in the beginning of ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' has the dialogue in perfect Russian, although the Russian general has a weak but noticeable foreign accent (due to the actor being Polish) and Natasha herself speaks with a very heavy accent. The text on the billboard briefly seen outside the building appears to be gibberish, though.

* Nonna and Clara in ''Anime/GirlsUndPanzer [[TheMovie der Film]]'' tend to speak very fluent Russian when shown together, much to Katyusha's chagrin. Justified on two counts: [[Creator/SumireUesaka Nonna's seiyuu]], being a massive Russophile, studied Russian previously; while Clara's seiyuu ''is'' Russian.
